Here at the office of Dr. Joseph Viana, our composite fillings in Yonkers are some of our most popular services. Many of our patients have older fillings that are darker in color and therefore interrupt the continuity of whiteness and brightness in their smiles, and so they are looking for an alternative option. Our composite fillings in Yonkers are often an excellent fit when it comes to replacing older fillings and still providing the same level of tooth restoration. The main purpose of our composite fillings in Yonkers is to restore teeth back to their natural structure and function, while also maintaining the aesthetic value of the natural tooth. Fillings are used in a number of situations. Dr. Viana most often recommends the use of fillings if you have a tooth that is decayed to the point where portions of the tooth need to be removed and replaced. Fillings are also used to repair basic cavities, if a tooth has been broken or damaged in some other way, and in some cases, purely for cosmetic purposes if the tooth is discolored or misshapen. Our composite fillings in Yonkers are most often recommended if the tooth that is being repaired is located in the front of the mouth where it can be seen more readily by others. Teeth located in the back of the mouth where most chewing takes place are not always the best candidates for tooth-colored fillings, because they need a higher level of durability that sometimes these newer fillings are unable to provide. That can be determined on a case by case basis, though, and depends on the individual situation.
